I was 19 when I had my first child, many people said it was too young. That Timm and I were idiots who couldn’t cope with being parents… We probably were idiots. But the minute that not so little bundle was put in our arms it all changed. We realised what the meaning of life was, we had created a human being and it was amazing. Ellie and Thom followed in the next four years and our family was complete.
I love being a mum, yes I may complain about the difficulties, the constantly messy house, teenage dramas and general stress of having a family but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My kids are the best achievement of my life, they are the thing I am most proud of and three of the most important people in the world.
My heart beats for them and Im continually blown away that between myself and that wonderfully weird husband of mine, we managed to create these three perfect, unique, bizarre, clever, funny, kind, talented, beautiful children.
They are the reason I get up in the morning and the reason I fight so damn hard to be healthy and positive. The reason I will go through surgery, medication and recovery so I can be the best momma I possibly can for them.
Life is fragile, it can be so brief. Hold your loved ones close today, tell them you love them.
